    We begin to prepare for your trip long before the date you have chosen, therefore we need an accurate head count and payment for proper planning of your trip. A $200.00 deposit is required to hold your date. If you cancel your trip before 30 days of the start of your trip, your deposit will be refunded in full. If you cancel up to two 2 weeks before the start of your trip, you will recieve 50% of your deposit. A final headcount and payment in full is due 1 week before the start of your trip. Individuals or entire groups backing out after this point will not recieve a refund.

    A full refund will be given if your trip is cancelled due to flood conditions as specified by the National Weather Service. You will have the option to run a different river if flood conditions exist on the river you have chosen.
